Over the past four weeks the bus route EM1 has been running at a loss, due to lack of
passengers, the number of pupils has not been as high as expected (mainly in the morning).
After many discussions with the school, who have been subsidising the service to make up
the shortfall, we have decided to trial a different way of charging which we’re afraid will
include an increase otherwise the service will have to be withdrawn.
From Monday 2nd December the charge will be £3.80 return or £2.00 for a single journey.
The route and times are:
07.30 Thornton’s tyres (Syston)
07.35 Fosseway/St Aiden’s
07.38 Asda (Thurmaston)
07.41 Highway Rd
07.44 Silverdale Shops
07.46 Tesco Humberstone Lane
07.58 Birstall Garden Centre
08.00 Greengate Lane
08.15 English Martyrs School
This will be a trial until Christmas when it will be reviewed again. We appreciate your
